Diehard Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots fans aren’t the only ones who can’t wait for Super Bowl 52 to kick-off in Minneapolis on February 4th – everyone who loves football and Super Bowl parties – are anxiously awaiting the big game. On game day, the average American will consume at least 2,400 calories just during the four to five hour telecast. That’s well above the amount of calories recommended for an entire day! K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter says a Super Bowl party doesn’t have to be calorie crazy. She recommends throwing a party that includes super snacks, super drinks and super activity.

Sound Living is a weekly public affairs program addressing issues related to families and consumers. It is hosted by Jeff Wichman. Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
